Team GB has partnered with DB Schenker to be their Official Logistics Supplier.
DB Schenker have the task of delivering 27 containers-worth of sporting equipment, food items and home from home necessities to ensure that athletes have the best possible environment when they arrive at Team GB’s pre-games Preparation Camps and into the Olympic Village.
The home away from home environment is something that Team GB prides itself on at Games-time with athletes not wanting for anything when it comes to things such as sleep kits, their favourite tea bags or even pots of peanut butter.
There will be a total of 27 freight containers that could cover one and a half basketball courts, and will contain 550 pallets worth of goods making their way to Tokyo, including over 1500 water bottles, 35 boxes of squeezy honey, 600 pillow packs and 500 bags of Team GB pin badges to name but a few. These containers will set sail from Southampton in the next fortnight.
In addition to this huge shipment of Team GB goods, DB Schenker are providing logistics, transport, freight forwarding, warehousing and set up in Tokyo. Focussed on sustainability, Team GB are minimising their carbon footprint by opting to send almost all of their shipment by ocean with DB Schenker.
DB Schenker will also be providing their services and support to Team GB for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, in February 2022.
